Production of biocellulose and sugar consumption by G. xylinus entrapped on different gel materials
4.6.2. Effect of adsorption of G. xylinus cells on the production of biocellulose
This experiment deals with the study of biocellulose produced by G. xylinus cells adsorbed on different solid porous supports. The cells were adsorbed on synthetic sponge cubes (SSC), luffa pulp (LP), Pumice particles (PP), clay particles (CP), ceramics particles (CP).
An optimized culture medium containing the porous supports (about 10 particle/30 ml medium) was inoculated with one ml of bacterial culture. After 15 days incubation under static condition at 30°C. The biocelluose production and sugar consumption were determined.
The results graphically illustrated in Fig 4.11 revealed that adsorption of G. xylinus cells on luffa pulp (LP) and ceramics particles (CP) gave the highest biocellulose production and sugar consumption (14.5 g/l and 10.0 g/l, respectively) which represents increasing of 1.14- fold and 1.05 - fold, respectively from gained from free cells. On the other hand, other solid supports gave lower biocellulose

xylinus. Data represented in Fig 4.14 exhibited the surface view for biocellulose under 15000 × magnification nanofiberils which can’t be observed due to converge by a thick layers so it has well interconnected pore network structure and biocellulose dried sheet under 10000× magnification, the biocellulose was fibrous with irregular size and shape (Fig 4.15). Observation of biocellulose under 10000 × magnification showed the fine cellulose ribbons, sometimes called fibrils. Observation of biocellulose fibril network produced by G. xylinus is shown in Fig

    The optimized parameters were found to be 16 % ortho- phosphoric acid concentration, 12.5 % total solids loading, 121°C and 3 h. The highest total sugar yield of 0.418g/g of pearl millet biomass, 70.06 % of lignin reduction and 70.67 % of cellulose content increase was obtained for the optimized conditions. The biomass difference between raw and pretreated biomass loss was to solubilization of polymeric components to small dispersed fibers in the hydrolysate. The predicted responses were 0.416 g/g of pearl millet biomass of sugar recovery, 70.68 % cellulose content increase and 70.87 % of lignin removal. A maximum lignin reduction of (70.87 %) and increase of cellulose content (70.68 %) was evident from the optimized pretreatment conditions. The predicted value and experimental values were nearly similar to each other.…

    Optimization of culture conditions for protease production The procedure adopted for optimization of various parameters influencing protease production was to evaluate the effect of each parameter independently keeping others as constant. The optimized parameters were incorporated in subsequent experiments. . The fungal culture was grown in 25 ml of production media g/L- (skim milk: 10.0, yeast extract: 0.5, NaCl: 0.5, K2HPO4: 2.0, MgSO4.2 H2O: 0.05, CaCO3: 0.02, FeSO4.7H2O: 0.01) in 100 ml flasks and autoclaved at 121° C, 15psi for 15 minutes. Effect of temperature, pH, carbon and nitrogen sources on protease activity The experiment was carried out at different temperature (27° C, 32° C, 37° C) and pH (4, 6 and 8).…

    • Sucrose can be broken down into glucose and fructose to produce energy. • Glucose is broken down into a pathway called “glycolysis” which produces pyruvate. Pyruvate then goes into the Citric Acid Cycle and produces ATP which is the energy needed in our bodies. • The first 2 steps of fructose breakdown is unique to fructose. • When Fructose is broken down, the enzyme fructokinase converts fructose to fructose-1-phosphate.…

    The rheology characteristics of enzyme clarified beetroot juice with added additives such as maltodextrin (MD), inulin (INU) and their combination (MD+INU) was studied at a wide range of concentrations (0 to 20% dry solids) and temperatures (5 to 80°C) by controlled stress rheometer. The rheological parameter shear stress was measured upto the shear rate of 600s-1. The temperature dependency of Newtonian viscosity of beetroot juice was described by Arrhenius equation. The effect of added solid content on viscosity of enzyme clarified beetroot juice was studied followed by exponential type equation at the temperature. A combined single relation Newtonian viscosity to temperature and added solid content of different carrier material in enzyme…
